I am all about the festive makeup, even though I still doing go too OOTD, I do like to make a bit more of an effort that I normally do, and Christmas is the perfect time right?
I thought I would share with you this look as I went out for a Christmas meal with some friends (which was just delightful!) and I really liked my makeup so thought I would share with you my look.
I like to normally go for a golden shimmer eye look when Christmas is around the corner. Who am kidding, I wear it most of the time!
Gold shimmer on the eyes is just my favourite any time of year, but it’s so perfect for Christmas. My Morphe Palette in the shade Fall into Frost has been my absolute go to product over the last couple of months. If you don’t have a Morphe palette I highly recommend in purchasing one! They have so many shades and at such a good price too.
The highlighter which I use is for special occasions now, I used to wear it everyday but I have hit pan and it’s slowly getting lower and lower which makes me so sad 🙁 Mary-Lou-Manizer from The Balm is one of my favourite highlights of all time (and if you know me, you know I love my highlighter.) This gives the most perfect golden shimmer and glow that you need for the festivities.
For lips, I went for one fo the PIXI liquid matte lipsticks in the shade Evening Rose. This is the perfect shade when you don’t want that classic Christmas red shade, but you still want your lips to stand out and be on of your main makeup features. This is actually the first time I have tried one fo the PIXI liquid matte lipsticks, and I have to say I am very impressed. I love my matte liquid lipsticks, and have done all year and I really rate the PIXI ones so I definitely recommend grabbing one of those, they do some really good neutral shades too.
Next onto eyes. I love my eyelashes looking extra long and thick, so I always like to add a pair of falsies if I am going out for a nice meal. For this evening I decided to go for the KOKO 503 lashes which I have just fallen in love with. My favourite lashes are the three quarter length ones as I love the effect that these give. They really add length and flutter to your look, and they don’t look like you’re wearing fake lashes, which is always good!
These are my main festive look must haves for this year. I went for a much more natural and subtle party look, but I love it so much. what is your favourite festive product of the year?
Love always, G x
